The food was okay I haven’t been in a while,
But I do remember the quality being better than Texas de Brazil.

When we arrived we were seated next to the entrance of the kitchen.One try missed my husband's head by a hair.We requested a table change and we were seated in a some what better spot.They weren't crowded and we felt we should have been given a better spot.Tha food is great but we felt it is overpriced.

Great Servers. Mediocre Food for $60+ per person. There are better Brazilians place out there. Their servers are the best but we would not go back - just for value and Taste.

They ran out of chicken breast wrapped in bacon at 8pm on a Friday night!?!? Come on people, THINK AHEAD! 6 of us really wanted the chicken. Inexcusable.

Two diners with a bottle of wine, tax and tip - $200.00. If you can afford that, go for it.
Salad bar is great, a wide assortment. Meat served seemed limited, at least what we were offered. I would prefer 1 man-sized steak rather a number of carved slices.

Visited on a Thursday evening. Got seated in the middle of room, very noisy! Salad bar was delicious,as usual. Had to ask for different meats. Everyone has to try the grilled pineapple.

EVERYTHING about our experience at Chima Sunday night was amazing! I brought my boyfriend in (blind folded and all) for a surprise birthday dinner where he had his first glass/ bottle of wine hahaha needless to say we were both amazed by the service, food, wine and everything about the surroundings that we are already planning our next date night at Chima :) Thank you again for an amazing night out!

I have visited Chima many times. One should expect impeccable service at the price point of this restaurant, and historically that has always been the case. This last visit was very poor service from our waitress. Table maintenance was non-existent. The waitress was never to be found. We had to ask for help from a manager who was passing by. He ended up filling our drinks because he could not find her. We sat for 15 minutes before she came around and offered us coffee and dessert. Coffee came, with one of the orders wrong, and we still had dinner plates on the table. Not what one expects for a $60 per head Sunday lunch. The food was excellent and the Gaucho servers were attentive. The restaurant was clean and well maintained.

Overall the place was great, but the food was much too expensive. They also must not trick people into getting bottled water. They never gave the guest the option to get regular water. The waiter and waitresses were too busy. They approach the table at 100 miles per hour running to say "Is everything ok"? Before you have the opportunity to respond they took off.

We go to. Chima 3 to 4 times during the year. And this occasion the waiter was very slow. We had to remind him of the dessert after 30 minutes the same when we ask for water refills

Valet Service Good and reasonable priced. Agent who took name for seating good. Notification system good but server went looking for us and so we waited for her return. So would still with system. Two people seated after us where attended to before us . So was not happy about that. Busy Valentines night I know but felt more like a number than a paying guest in this experience. Food was tasty.

We frequent this place often but tonight was a Birthday dinner. Maria was our server. As always, the food was fresh and outstanding. I cant say enough about Maria. She is so pleasant and made sure our dining experience was a five star dinner. Always recommend this place if you are visiting Fort Lauderdale.

We’re on vacation. We came to Chima’slast year and wanted to come back.
We didn’t even need the meat selections. We just got the salad bar and fish
and it was perfect.

We used Open Table reward points for this reservation. They were very generous in taking them at this restaurant. The wine list was very good with many selections. Our server, Sula, was attentive and professional. The options on the salad bar were very good. Great variety. Meats were plentiful and delicious. We also had a delicious dessert. Very good experience. Thank you.

Not much food options and for doesn’t have much flavor. Restaurant too crowded and tables too close to each other. The food is not worth the price, too expensive. Plus the rule of people not being able to share meat even if they both bought food, is not a good rule at all. The chicken is good but the steak wasn’t great. Service is great but that’s about it.

First time and sat out at bar waiting for table to be ready. My husband ordered 3 drinks. They charged $21 for a glass of wine and never said it wasn’t on Happy Hour. That is ridiculous. Very loud. Service was very good. Everyone very friendly.

There is not other Brazilian Steakhouse as good as Chima, the quality of the food is tasted since you eat the cheese bread and side dishes, is the same delicious flavor. That shows the consistency on every single detail that they put on, is not only the meat that is amazing, it’s absolutely everything.
There should be a 6th star for restaurants like this, impecable restaurant that offers outstanding service at any day of the week.
Rotation of the different cuts of meat is awesome too, you get to see everything they offer, not like other Brazilian Steakhouses that you have to request especial items all the time.
If you’re around Miami/Fort Lauderdale area and your don’t visit this place, definitely you’ll miss out an opportunity to witness and taste the quality of the best Brazilian Steakhouse.

The place is nice but the need to work on their customers service. The waitress was rude and arrogant, the waiter never brought you all the cut of meat. I was under the impression that they were in a rush to clear the table.

I should have checked the prices before we went. $155 plus tip for 2 people was high. Especially annoyed we were charged $14 for water! Service was good and the Salad bar had many unusual items. I was stuffed.
I would have liked to take the food I could not eat home but it was not allowed.
